Paul and Adam acknowledge the "ideal" TI-style of swimming (which they call "Smooth") as a valid way of swimming.

In contrast, Terry does not acknowledge the...

I daresay, Terry has made far more public, derogatory comments about SS than Paul or Adam have made about TI. Remember the 'Swim Smoove' thread? (subsequently deleted)

Hi Stuart, I'll be there for the NYD Alcatraz. The main thing Dianna and Pauline are concerned about is that you're not going to be a danger to yourself and others - especially given the unseasonably...

These comments reflect either a woeful misunderstanding of Swim Smooth's methods, or a transparent strawman tactic.

Best stuff is on the marathonswimmers.org forum. Best summary of the issues is the National Geographic article. I think Dave Barra (who was interviewed for the article) would agree with this.

I didn't mean to imply Tahoe was rough - it was remarkably calm. It was just a "here's what I did last weekend" sort of aside. You're right, my stroke in that video is fairly similar to what I'd do...

An observation contradicted, ironically enough, by both Dave Scott and Paul Newsome. LOL. Perhaps the observation itself is bunk (or rather: "untestable").

I suppose this response and the name-calling ("troll") is one way to avoid responding to the substance of my posts.
